This one goes down really easy. Nice malt up front followed by some really refreshing fresh cut grass and finishes with mild citrus. I really enjoyed this beer from rhinegeist. Want to try more.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pretty orange-golden body, good head with lacing

S - Nice smell. Citrus and floral notes with a bit of bread on the end.

T - Upfront with the hops as advertised, piney and orangey spiciness are clearly present. Had a really nice, subtle, caramel taste in the middle and then finishes off with a lingering faint bitterness.

M - Super drinkable, low carbonation, bitter but clean finish.


O - It was less hoppy than an IPA but it was still hop forward but didn’t have as strong of a bitter finish that normally comes with an IPA which was appreciated. Very nice beer with a very unique taste.

Not bad, but not great. It is one of the many hoppy beers by Rhinegeist.

Agree with @WesMantooth on this one . . . This and Truth are so far the best in the Rhinegeist line up. Nice tropical aroma and flavors along with a strong yet subtle malt presence that won't burn your taste buds up with bitterness yet still toes the line of ipa territory . . . Almost. Mouthfeel is slightly thin but not a detractor. Overall a very good new pale ale.

I bought a 6pck of this from the local Meijer's. It poured a hazy copper with white head that is leaving a ring lace. The scent is faint bitter citrus. The taste is nicely balanced and fairly easy to drink. There was bitter citrus presence. The Mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's another solid offering from rhinegeist.

Pure Fury brewed by Rhinegeist Brewery, 5.70% ABV. This brew pours out a deep golden amber color, with a nice white head. There is also a decent amount of lacing to this brew, it sticks well to the side of the glass. The smell is rich with hop bitterness, and earthly grains and malts. There is a lot going on in this brew so far. Now for the taste, it is hops, with earthly grains and malts. The hops are not overpowering at all, the grains and malts really give good flavor to this APA. This is a nice medium bodied APA. This APA is a nice smooth drinking brew. There is nothing overpowering about this brew, it has a real super nice balance to it. The mouth feel of Pure Fury is Hops, Bold , Clean and Refreshing. Overall I'm giving, Pure Fury 4.25 out of 5. Rhinegeist Brewery, did a real nice job with this brew, I would buy this brew again.

I really like the complex malt of tea leaves, caramel, barley, grains and bran flakes. The hop flavor is not my favorite as it starts with lemon, a plus, but then tends towards an oniony chive and a light bitter pine. It drinks with very little bitterness or astringent.

Let me start by saying that this brewery has probably been my most frequent purchased brewery in the past 6 months. They hit the head on every style they attempt. Just so damn solid. Now on to the beer.

Beautiful and frothy in the glass with two fingers of rocky straw colored head from a vigorous pour. Retention is average and turns to swiss cheese as it fades. Paint strokes of lace are left all along the top of the glass. Body is a deep amber orange tone usually reserved for bigger IPA but this is very attractive. Nose is big and fragrant with tons of citrus hops and floral hop notes as well. There is a bit of a raw grainy malt smell that teams with the hops. As I take first sip you are greeted by a nice overall dryness. Hops are more on the mineral and dry side but it creates a really nice flavor profile that isn't harshly bitter but has a lovely dry character to the palate. Mouthfeel is very crisp and lively. This is a solid pale.
